3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's fine for small issues, but I would go to the clinics or hospital in Oxford for something major.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: All you have to do is go to hockey game at Miami, and you will see the best fans ever.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I know people from every religion and many different backgrounds. I haven't heard of any issues.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Oxford has a lot of restaurants, you can always find something to suit about anyone.

3 College Freshman

Parking: I don't have a car on campus, therefore I have no comment about it.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I will not live off campus until my junior year, so I can't offer information about this.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't do drugs and am not around any one who does. I really don't have information on this topic.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus provides routes to anywhere you need to go.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had no problems. My high school actually was to blame for not getting more scholarship money, because the curriculum isn't difficult enough.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are many options and the food is good. The meal plan works well and food is available at any time.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I can't imagine being anywhere else. I love Miami University.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I just changed majors, therefore this doesn't apply to me.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I have had great professors and have no issues with anything I have done. Everyone is very helpful.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I only go to concerts at a place uptown. I don't party.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I have my own computer and printer, so I haven't used the school's computers. Wireless access has a few issues that they are trying to work out.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Miami University offers about anything you can imagine. As far as tradition, "Love and Honor", echoes around the world.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Miami University has a beautiful campus. It offers many opportunities of a large university, but with a small campus feel.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's Ohio, need I say more.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I haven't been personally involved in any campus strictness situations.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: You can use your meal plan at buffet, a la carte, and market type food places, so there is a lot of variety. Dining hall food for the most part is expected, but there are specialty locations.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: This is a small town, but Uptown does have a variety of different food locations for how few the restaurants are.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus police do a lot to keep you safe. There are usually many people out at night so you don't feel so alone.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It's pretty much a typical campus when you get down to it. We are known for being preppy, but there are lots of different people that go here.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Some teachers are big on attendance and the use of computers or cell phones, but some aren't.

2 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: University is more interested in getting rid of you (and loading you up with fines and alcohol education and assessment fees to their financial gain) than helping you if you develop a problem. 0 tolerance policy and some RAs will stalk you (spoken from personal experience) Miami only wants "perfect" as they have been trying to improve their alcohol reputation. Miami's reputation is priority over a genuine interest in helping especially young college freshmen finding their way in a drinking college culture. Very sad.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

There’s an old saying that goes, “You can make a big school small, but you can’t make a small school big.” The overall experience at Miami University is different for every student, but most seem to have enjoyed their time here, and most will agree that the former part of this statement is representative of Miami. Miami is not a huge school, but it is large enough to feel like a big university without being overwhelming. It is essential to find a niche when you arrive; otherwise, you may get lost in the shuffle. One of the best ways to determine if you will like Miami is to take into consideration what is important to you in a school and to really weigh your options. Visit the campus and ask questions—this is the next four or five years of your life. If Miami does not fulfill an important need you have, it probably isn’t the school for you, and there are people here who feel like they don’t belong.

Nobody enjoys school 100 percent of the time, but the students at Miami have a plethora of options, both social and academic, at their doorsteps. At Miami, you cannot be afraid to try new things, talk to new people, or grow as an individual. However, this is true no matter where you decide to attend college. Overall, the most important fact to take away from this guide is that most students feel that they made the right decision in attending Miami.
